A New Name for a Type Common In the
World. Brooklyn Eagle.} A new word has been coined. It is d-u-d-e or d-o-o-d. The spelling does nort seem to be distinctly settled yet, but custom will soon regulate it. Just where the word came from no body knows, bnt it has sprung into popularity within the hist two weeks, so that now everybody is using it. It means a masher, and yet it means something more than a masher. For instance, a masher may be young or old, he may mash bv virtue of his po liteness, of bis accomplishments, of bis wealth, beauty, eyes, nose or fame; ho may be a man or mature years, an old man, a young man, or a boy. In speaking of mashers one is never sure exactly what sort of a man is meant. There is a class of mashers in New York who will now have a definite place m the language of the town as dudes. A dude cannot be old; he must be young, and to be properly termed a dude be should be one of a certain class who affect the metropol itan theaters. The dude is from 1 it to 28 years of age, wears trousers of extreme tightness, is hollow-chested, effcininutc in his ways, apes the Eng lish, and distinguishes himself among his fellow-men as a lover of actresses. The badge of his office is the paper cigarette, and his bell crown English opera hat is his chicfest joy. They ore seen in large numbers at the tliea ters, where they form one of the most interesting features of the evening entertainments. They are offensive j because they blow cigarette-smoke in j ladies' faces, and monopolize the bur j between the acts. As a rule they are j rich men's son s, and very proud of i i * .i i the unlimited cash at they command. : They call all actresses by their first j names, aild affect extreme familiarity I with all things pertaining to the stage; I but in reality they know very little ! personally of the men and women < f j the dramatic profession. Still the - dude always poses as a particular fa vorite of the reigning theatrical ee- | lebrity. They are a harmless lot of men in one wav, for they are too shal low pated ami weak to accomplish | any harm, but they are sometimes of-1 fensive. No dude is a real dude who 1 does not talk to a fellow dllde in u | loud voice during the play; also, DO dude who respects himself ever takes a lady to the theater. They run in j pairs and compare notes between the j acts. The most eminent dude in New ; York is the son of a Wall street j broker »f considerable wealth. This j dude is the pet apostle of the order. He has been in more scrapes with actresses than any other man in town,! and his name has been muddled up j with lialf a dozen dirty scandals. He | cently he married a girl who was sing- j ing here in an English opera troupe I while bis intellect was somewhat mud-1 tiled through cigarette smoke or souu - ! thing of that sort, and her father hud to pay her some thousands of d liars to get her to agree to a separation from the prospective young million aire. It was accomplished after some : difficulty, and she left the English op era troupe, went to England, and the last time I heard of her she had mar ried a wealthy barrister in Manehes ter. The steamer had scarcely left j the dock when the dude became in-! volved in another row, which resulted in his father sending him off to t'ali- 1 l'ornia under the care of a friendly lawyer for a six weeks'tiip. The old man would give anything to have his son show a little more discretion in the matter of public scandal, hut he can- j not give him advice with much grace,! because the father himself was in his younger days, a 'Wonder of the most malignant type. So, whenever he i charges his son, the son looks at him and smiles softly ami asks him about the days of yore. The word dude is j a valuable addition to the slang of the dav. A correspondent newspaper visited i Portland of a large jam pro ducing factory, in which he found the work going bravely on, without the aid of fruit at all. Jams of current, plum, apricot, strawberry, raspberry and gooseberry were produced 'before Ins eyes, yet neither fruit was in the building. Turnips alone were used. The flavoring matter was extracted from coal tar, and the resemblance to raspberry and strawberry was per fected by mixing the compound with small seeds of some cheap, innoxious herb. A common form of sugar is used, and this is the only honest in- j gradient of the mess. 1 he preserves! are offered as made from this season's! fruit.—Virginia (Nev.) Chronicle. It is no longer proper in Boston to say "those who dance must pay the piper." The Post heard a swei t girl say: "Those who indulge in terpsi chorean recreation are under obliga tions to remunerate the violinist." A heavy land-slide occurred last night on the hills across the river. It is a pi'y a slide of some kind could not occur on Main street, Bullion, and carry off a few hundred tons of gar bage, ice and tin cans which almost block the street.
